The Unstable Mind of a Writer
How do I write,
When my head is so tight?
Try as I might,
The words are quite right.
Poetry is hard,
When my thoughts are scarred.
I’m in a literacy junkyard,
In need of a wordsmith lifeguard.
So I go with the flow,
Write what I know.
Where will my words go?
Maybe over rainbow,
Or to a whole new place,
Where words I’ll embrace.
Il discover my inner space,
And with poetry I’ll interface.
